"Homeland" Actress Morena Baccarin Welcomes a Son

Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- Homeland actress Morena Baccarin welcomed her first child -- a son named Julius -- on Tuesday, her rep confirms to ABC News.

The boy weighed in at just less than 8 pounds, reported People magazine, who broke the story.

“Julius and his mother are happy and healthy,” the rep told the magazine.

Baccarin, 34, had a little scare as the baby was delivered in the breech position -- or feet first -- but Julius is doing just fine.

The recent Emmy nominee told People that Dr. Ronald Wu of Glendale Adventist Medical Center, a specialist in breech births, provided “the birth experience I wanted.”

Baccarin married director Austin Chick in November 2011 and announced this past May that the couple was expecting.
